Full Answer

The best way to judge if a bone-in chicken breast is thoroughly cooked is to use an instant-read thermometer, inserting it into the thickest part of the breast. When the breast is fully cooked, the thermometer should read 165 degrees Fahrenheit and all juices should run clear. Bone-in chicken breasts are easy to prepare, and because they have a bone present, the heat is more evenly distributed while cooking, allowing for a juicy, consistent finished product.
